Vitamin E is a powerful nutrient that works as an antioxidant, protecting our cells from free radicals. It also helps the body fight diseases by boosting our immune system. But how does the hair benefit from vitamin E?
Vitamin E supports hair growth and prevents premature hair greying. It also helps in blood circulation and red blood cell formation. This ensures a steady stream of hair-boosting nutrients within the hair follicles, aiding in a normal hair cycle. It protects all the cells in the body including the cells found in our follicles and skin.
We can either take it orally or apply it topically onto our scalp on its own. We can also make a vitamin E hair treatment.
How to make a vitamin E hair treatment for faster hair growth
- 1 cup pure coconut milk or coconut oil - coconut oil is rich in fatty acids and antioxidants. It prevents scalp conditions and stop hair loss.
- 2 Tbsps. Honey - Raw organic honey helps condition and moisturize our hair strands for manageability and a glossy finish.
- 1-2 Tbsps. (depending on hair length) olive oil or rosemary oil - organic oils usually contain fatty acids that soften and hydrate our hair. Herbal extracts also help neutralize the scalp's pH levels. Our hair won't get dry and our hair will never look dull again.
- Vitamin E liquid - We can use vitamin E gel caps by piercing about 3 capsules and taking the vitamin E oil inside the capsules.
